How to use Vexnet Competition Switch for Autonomous Program


My objective is for my robot to execute autonomous code that we have written.

I would like to accomplish this by:

  1. Using Vexnet Competition Switch
  2. By writing a new Competition Template by navigating to the ‘File -> New -> Competition Template’ menu option.

I have done #2.

Now questions I have:

  • How do I make robot execute this autonomous code?
  • What are the steps?
  • What are the hardware connections?
  • Is there a page that describes all of this?



Here is a link to an basic tutorial on using the competition switch:


Yup, that worked! Thank you realjohnpark!
